For potential Ph.D. students interested in a position in our lab: Due to the large number
of emails, I may not be able to respond to every inquiry. Note that research topics in
our lab change over time; as of December 2019, the highest priority research area is
"smart health", which requires skills/interest in physiological sensing, mobile/wearable
devices, sensor data analysis using machine learning, signal/speech processing, and
mobile app development.

- Diplom-Ingenieur, University of Technology Vienna, June 1998
My research interests span areas such as distributed real-time systems, resource
management (e.g., energy management), wireless/mobile networks,
wireless sensor networks, vehicular networks, smart phone apps, and pervasive
healthcare applications and systems.
I direct the Mobile Computing Lab (M-Lab), where we focus on projects such as mobile applications and services, wireless networks (primarily MANETs, VANETs, mesh networks, etc.), wireless sensor networks, QoS and real-time requirements, energy efficiency, and pervasive/mobile healthcare solutions.
Our group's research is funded through grants by NSF (including a 2006 CAREER
award), Office of Naval Research, Army Research Office, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Motorola (Motorola Labs and Motorola Foundation),
IBM (including a 2008 IBM Real-time Innovation Award), Toyota InfoTechnology Center, and Serim Research Corporation. Further, our lab has received hardware donations from Intel Corporation, Motorola Labs, Sprint, and Google.
Between 2010 and 2012, I also served as executive board member for
Notre Dame's Wireless Institute, which
focuses on everything wireless, from radio technologies and protocols to
wireless and mobile applications to "other" aspects of wireless
communications such as social, legal, and business matters. I am also member
of the Notre Dame Advanced
Diagnostics and Therapeutics (AD&T) initiative at Notre Dame, the Center for
Civic Innovation, and the Pulte Institute for Global Development.
More information about the M-Lab, AD&T, the Center for Civic Innovation, and the Pulte Institute
can be found on the links below.
